The Flow resistance indicator result shows the resistance at the flow front from the gates.
This result, which is output from a Gate Location analysis by using the Advanced Gate Locator algorithm, represents the flow resistance at the flow front from the gate location, normalized to show the highest flow resistance through to the lowest flow resistance.
Using this result
Use the Flow resistance indicator result in conjunction with Fill analysis results and the Gating suitability result to determine the most appropriate gate location(s).
If the flow resistance is not evenly distributed from the injection locations to the end of the flow paths, you may need to relocate or add new injection locations.
Things to look for
Ensure the flow resistance is evenly distributed throughout the part. Areas that have a high relative flow resistance that are surrounded by areas of low relative flow resistance may cause defects or filling problems.
